Big Ghosts Don’t Cry Audiobook

4 Hearts

I was excited to be back into Beechwood Harbor. I’ve really found that I really enjoy the series that take place in this little town filled with supernatural people. In this story, Scarlett is faced with a murdered ghost who just wants to move on, but there is a reason she didn’t move on, on her own

Scarlett is still learning about her powers. No ghost has ever asked her to send them on their way before, so she really doesn’t know much about what she’s doing, but she also wants to be helpful. So, she tries to help solve the murder with her three ghostly companion and her still-living boyfriend.

I’ve found that I really enjoy these cozy mysteries that Danielle Garrett. They’re short, light-hearted, and very entertaining stories. I love the mix of paranormal, mystery, romance and humor. Add in Amanda Ronconi’s narrator and this is a series that I can use as an escape from the real world for a few hours.

Big Ghosts Don’t Cry Audiobook Narration

5 Hearts

Amanda Ronconi is such an amazing narrator. I always have a fun time listening to her stories. She really puts emotions into all the characters. The voices always fit the personalities of the characters. I’ve you’ve never listened to Ronconi narrate a story, you’re really missing out.

From a young age, Danielle Garrett was obsessed with fantastic places and the stories set in them. As a lifelong bookworm, she’s gone on hundreds of adventures through the eyes of wizards, princesses, elves, and some rather wonderful everyday people as well.

Danielle now lives in Oregon and while she travels as often as possible, she wouldn’t call anywhere else home. She shares her life with her husband and their house full of animals, and when not writing, spends her time being a house servant for three extremely spoiled cats.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. Melanie I’ve seen and enjoyed your other reviews in this series it is definitely on my wish list. Thanks for sharing

  2. I haven’t read this author yet but this sounds good.

    I love the little ghosts and pumpkins flying around on your blog.

  3. I have to put this on my list to download. I absolutely love Amanda Ronconi and think a fun story like this would be perfect between heavy, dark stories.

    • Yes, these are perfect for in between those darker stories. I do the same thing.

  4. Aw yes, I should try this genre in audio

    • I still need to try more in this genre. I’ve mostly only listened to this author I did try one other. I can’t remember the name now, but I enjoyed it as well.

  5. This looks like a fun cozy series. I haven’t read one in a long time. I need to try this series. I agree about Amanda, she is an excellent narrator.

    • I’m still very new to cozies. This was my first author. I think I’ve read all the books that she has out on audio.

  6. I feel the same, Melanie. It’s a great blend of all the good stuff. This was fun how she learned more about her powers even if she made the big mistake. Looking forward to each new book with Amanda Ronconi narrating. 🙂

    • I honestly think that is how most of us learn, is by the mistakes that we make. Most are as dire as the one she did. I’m just glad that she was able to make it right.

  7. I need to read some of her books

  8. I really liked this one, and I love to see how Scarlett is progressing. I like her romance storyline, too. I don’t know how I feel about the addition of demons to the world, but we’ll see how it plays out. Thanks!

  9. I love me some short and sweet cozy mysteries from time to time, so will definitely check out this series. 🙂

    • They are great to put between the heavier stories, for sure.

  10. I still haven’t read one of these, but honestly you really can’t lose with Amanda Ronconi narrating. She’s great. Paranormal, romance and mystery..sounds good to me. One day, hopefully I can try one of these.

  11. These do sound like fun listens. I love Ronconi’s narration and I enjoy these shorter easy listens every once in a while.

  12. I really enjoyed this one. It had the best mix of mystery, Scarlett personal development on the business side and personal relationship throughout the book.

    • I really liked this one too. I’m having such a great time with this series.
